It's hot in cottage country

Where are we today ?
Buckhorn Ontario
         A warm night again and this morning was  getting quite hot outside by 7 am, but thats ok we can handle it. Supposed to be the hottest day so far this year 37c (98f) with humidity much hotter.
        So, I got the early morning walkabouts done before it gets too hot, then a trip to Buckhorn for a few items.
nice campsites
        While cruising thru the village I noticed a few boats entering the lift lock here, #31 on the Trent Severn waterway. Its always fun to watch these very expensive boats enter the locks and be lifted to the next level.
nice map 
        After the shopping I picke up Suzie and we headed into the Farmer and Craft Market at the Buckhorn Community centre. Over 40 vendors here outside in the heat are a few and lots more inside the air conditioned hall. 
fresh veggies
awesome canoe raffle 
checking out stuff
more house boats by the locks
        Now back to the resort past the bear carvings on the way in and get to our nice shady site with a bit of a breeze. Yes we are in bear country.
        Sitting outside was great, I did a lot of computer research today too, but at least was outside.  A few people dropped by to chat and say welcome back then a short Happy Hour and fire up our Weber Q-100, throw on a couple potatoes to bake, some fresh mushrooms and onions, a bit of fresh broccoli then a very nice and tender prime rib steak.
oh so tasty
        After supper another visitor then read outside until its too dark about 9 pm back inside to post the blog and let the TV watch us.
        Thanks for the read and hope you are enjoying this hot weather too.
Check out the map below to see where we have been this summer

  1. We rented a houseboat for week one summer(this would have been about '96?) and tied up for the night in Buckhorn. Only problem was, we didn't realise there was a karaoke bar that was just a little too close. Bad enough if it had been a band, might have actually enjoyed that, but there was some horrid, horrid singing that we had to endure until about midnight. Gah.
    Cute little town though.

    1. Yes a nice small village , and the bar is still there, right beside where you tie up for the night.

  2. Love that part of the country. That canoe looks like a work of art. I would love to buy a raffle ticket on it. I remember the bears being carved last year.....they did a great job.

    1. An awesome canoe all hand made. The bears turned out great and still doing more.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
